This might be a silly questions but...

Is it ok to flush tampons down the toilet or should you wrap them up and throw them away like pads?

I feel like I'm too old to be asking this sort of thing, haha, but I've always used pads my whole life and just recently switched to tampons.

It's really better to toss them in the garbage than to flush them. There's a topic here about that question that can give you some more insight.
